Technical Specialist at Collaborative Creations
I was part of my school’s tech team doing the lighting and sound for shows. I didn’t realise it could be a real job until late on into my school life, once I knew it was, then I was hooked.
I mainly used it for my shows, at GSA there isn’t much design work, so when I had the option to, I threw lots of kit at it. I also used it for the connections, and got to know the team quite well. Overall, it was really beneficial for my career.
I worked for them as a freelancer, and got onto the new year's eve celebrations, as well as other freelance work.
Very beneficial. All of the industry PR that came as a result of the bursary got my name in front of some really influential people who helped me progress my career further.
Be yourself, it’s a lot easier to talk about things you are genuinely passionate about, rather than what you think the team wants to hear.
I currently work in business development, I represent brands such as Follow-Me and LEDblade, demoing them across the country and sometimes abroad.
DMX Cat, this saves me so much time, and is great for quick problem solving.
I would love to work on something on a large scale like Eurovision, or the Olympics.
I probably would have gone into IT.
Come From Away, just before lockdown. One of my good friends is in the sound team, it’s always great to support someone you know.
